's something i like to see and obviously a lot of my colleagues do, too. and i think a lot of middle america does as well. the whole issue of david plouffe coming aboard, washington and the media are fascinated by the cultive personality. and if president obama had already passed the health care reform and had an approval rating of 90% plouffe would still be brought in to help with the mid-term elections. axelrod is saying okay fly boy. time to come off the book tour and roll up your sleeves and get back into the trenches. he is a good hand but he isn't going to fundamentally change what is going on. he isn't giving different advice than david axelrod or robert gibbs. those guys come from the same place. it's interesting that this washington game, while it doesn't do anything different practically speaking inside the white house for the press and ultimately the public it resets the frame. in other words the press will writ something large into this motion that david plouffe has come into the mix and things are going to change because he is there. but that will actually help the obama adminis

america's political debate. they're laws that have been upheld multiple times by the supreme court. like in 1990 when the supreme court ruled it was constitutional to restrict corporate political spending or 2003 when the supreme court ruled specifically that the mccain/feingold corporate campaign finance rules were okay. today in one of the most radical supreme court actions in years justice roberts and alito and their five member conservative majority overthrew at least a decade of settled law and congressional action and multiple supreme court precedence to wipe those laws away. corporations are free to inject unregulated billions, absolutely unlimited money into the political system now. if you are a regular person who has ever made a campaign donation before, forget about ever having to do that again. what's the point in individual people trying to influence politics with donations if exxon or some other company can quite literally match and therefore cancel out the combined donations of every single individual donor in the nation whenever it wants? in one check? and it can do it ev

vice president very, very significant. must be stopped. >> being heard by america's enemies, by terrorists you think in a way that's dangerous to the country. if the obama administration shares your view and wants to stop president cheney from doing that, it's not like they have a lot of options. president cheney doesn't seem to be hearing calls to conscience on this. >> he doesn't but president obama said he believes in talking to our enemies abroad. he ran on that. he should also talk to his enemies at home. and i think that he needs to have a session with the former vice president, perhaps bring in bob gates and some others and tell him that he is not enhancing the national security of the united states with his comments. >> i can't imagine how excited dick cheney would k to get that invitation, but maybe it would be the only way to try to make some progress there. jonathan alter "newsweek" columnist, msnbc analyst. >>> later we have an air security story coming up that will both scare you and amuse you. we had to double-check to make sure it was not written by the onion.
